Windows 7: Cant set to my Native Resolution

Cant set to my Native Resolution

First of all, Hey There.
Im New here at this forum, but i hope i get some help from you guys!

Im so mad at this that i cant even almost explain it. Here i go!

I Have bought a XCM Box Vga 1080p to play Nintendo Wii at my monitor, (Hp 2159V) . With Windows XP, i could set my default resolution that is 1920 X 1080 and stays perfect, but i love Windows 7 , so i prefer windows 7 , i have already a version of windows 7 installed in my hard drive, that i have tryed so many things that it worked!! BUT i dont know what i have done to make it work... i changed again, and Now it says the maximum resolution i have is 1600 X 1200 and dont gets over it. All my images gets big and fat! I know that it works fine because i have already before this working with 1920 X 1080 but now i cant put it in that resolution!

I have a Geforce 9800 GT updated with the lasted firmware!

I think the problem is , with windows seven it detects as a monitor non generic and the maximum resolution is 1600 X 1200 but i cant change it!

Sorry for my bad english, Im from Portugal! Please Help me

Welcome to seven forums andresilva: You need to install your monitor driver so winodws will reconize it and it's native resolution. This is the 64 bit driver for seven if running 32 bit look up your monitor and select win 7 32 bit Select software and drivers HP 2159v 21.5 inch Diagonal LCD Monitor - HP Customer Care (United States - English) Good luck enjoy seven.

Try to install the monitor drivers first. If it's not an issue with the GPU drivers, and not the monitor driver, we can move on.

EDIT:

HURRAY I FOUND A "FIX" !!!

Here i have set it like this



it doesnt screw my computer or other part of my computer right?
I have set it like that , it means screen diginal painel 1920 X 1080 (i think sorry for my bad english) , after i set it like that, and changed to 1920 X 1080 via a created resolution of nvidia painel control, it worked fine .
Now my fear is , can this make a damage for my computer or screen?

If your monitor originally supports 1920x1080 @60Hz, it shouldn't be a problem.
